South Pole / Mt. Vinson combo - Back at basecamp mission accomplished!

After a day of descending from high camp the team has returned to Vinson basecamp, their temporary home away from home. It brings a sense of closure to this awesome expedition, but that doesn't mean that it is over!

They still need to make their way back to Union Glacier and from Union Glacier back to Punta Arenas. And for this they will need cooperation from the weather gods. 

Being back at basecamp there is surely a sense of R, R & R (rest, relaxation and relief!) With their mission accomplished they can now take a deep breath, sleep in, pat each other on the back and make the most of their remaining time in Antarctica. We congratulate them all on a job well done and wish them a well earned good night's rest.
